    I want to use a replacement home launcher, but I like using the HTC clock. So... I've been looking at Beautiful Widgets and Weather and Toggle. Which is better? Which is more customizable through skins? And most important... Which works better?

    Sorry about that, search Beautiful Widgets. I think it cost $1.49 but to me worth every penny.

    I clicked on your link and tried to download Fancy Widget. I used the barcode scanner and it said that HTC forced them to remove it.

    Same results. Oh well, guess I'll try one of the others mentioned. I kinda like the hand drawn skin. Do all the skins cost money?

    I like the stock weather on my Hero. I look at it several times per day, but it doesn't update nearly as often as I would like. Is there a way to automatically get it to update more frequently?

    Gotta tap on the weather icon, form there you go to settings, and you can set the 'update frequency' to the setting that you would like. The lowest setting is 1 hour, I have mine set for 3 hrs though.

    Right b4 I exchanged my hero, I redownloaded BW. Liked that I could use the different skins and could match my dock when I use LP. I haven't used it in so long I didn't know they had added animated weather.

    As long as you're on the topic of weather icons - I just updated my Hero to 2.1 (and the FOTA update) and now my Weather icon is not on my Home screen - just the words "My Location". Anybody know how do I go about getting it back? Thanks.

    Where did you get Fancy Widget? The barcode scan provided in the link ends up failing... :( Also, is it supported for 2.1?

    Thanks a lot, Don. It installed just fine. :)

    Btw, I couldn't get the weather function to refresh the forecast data. Does it require some other widget that will integrate with it? I know you can configure it to launch a different program (e.g. launch the Weather widget when clicking on the weather zone). But I'm looking for a way to update the weather display, as it appears on HTC Sense. Will that be facilitated when installed on a custom ROM? I'm presently running on 2.31.651.7 and planning to eventually switch to a custom ROM (once I get more familiar with the phone and the idiosyncrasies of the OEM software).

    Yes the easiest way is to hit all programs, and go the fancy widget from there, then go into settings from there, there are options there, to set the refresh and also manual refresh
